Sempra Energy sells natural gas storage assets
SAN DIEGO, Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sempra Energy announced that it has completed the sale of its non-utility U.S. natural gas storage facilities to an affiliate of ArcLight Capital Partners (ArcLight) for $328 million in cash, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. ArcLight's affiliate Enstor Gas will operate the facilities going forward.
"With the sale of these assets, we can reallocate capital toward growing our core electric and natural gas infrastructure businesses," said Joseph A. Householder, president and chief operating officer of Sempra Energy. "We are focused on expanding our leadership position in the most attractive markets as we strive to become North America's premier energy infrastructure company."
The non-utility natural gas storage assets included in the sale are the Mississippi Hub storage facility in Simpson County, Miss., with a working capacity of 22.3 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas, and the Bay Gas storage facility in Southwest Alabama, which comprises five underground caverns with a working capacity of 20.4 Bcf of natural gas.
The sale included Sempra Energy's approximate 91-percent stake in Bay Gas. Immediately prior to the sale, Sempra Energy's subsidiary acquired the approximate 9-percent interest from a minority owner and included it in the sale to ArcLight. ArcLight owns now 100 percent of Mississippi Hub and Bay Gas.
A New Approach to Large Medium Voltage Drives
By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
